    We use a gigantic old bulletin board we found at the thrift store as our surface so when not in use it can slide behind a door. Makes a great temporary wall behind me for webcam interviews as well. I don't know that I ever have a surface big enough for puzzles without it.

    Half Priced Books, if you have one near you, is great for puzzles as well.

    I just realized my reply may have come across as kinda mean/i'm-a-perfect-parent and that's totally not what I meant. It's just that that rule is pretty much one of the only rules I enforce 100% of the time lol

    I like the one at the bottom with the camper and the bears.

    I usually do puzzles in the winter time, especially when I get snowed in. Actually have one puzzle framed and hanging on my wall in my train room. I also got into doing Lego Architecture sets a year or so ago..I think of them as "3D puzzles".

    If you try to roll it up tight they can bend, I like the kind that has the inflatable tube as the start of the wrap and I wrap them just tight enough to hold the pieces in places. When you unroll it they'll kinda have little points where the connections are but you just run your hand over the whole thing and the pieces lay flat again. I prefer the "foam" rolls over the felt ones as well so that I can slip a piece of plastic under it when I'm ready to seal the whole puzzle together on completion. The felt, over time, tends to poke up between the joins and it's so irritating.

    I have one framed in my living room, a noah's ark. I have 2 others glued/taped, I think I'm just going to hang them in my or kiddo's room (without a frame because even poster frames are expensive af). 1 other one is ready to glue but I ran out lol.

    also just realized I'm completely derailing the thread. sorry :grimace:

    Oh no, not at all. I didn't get any mean vibes or anything like that from your post. (I may have came off short and cold because I started to overthink my response and I have a tendency to get wordy so I cut myself off I guess) I would do the same thing.

    Anyway you look at it, it's sub-average.
    At least the average of HITs I would complete.

    Maybe a 2/5 if it was painless

    Meanwhile @Kerek@Kerek is over here like

    :embarrased: I could go on... you can DIY yourself a roll up with a poster mailing tube and one of those shite thin yoga mats and rubber bands as well for puzzle emergencies. You know...when all your puzzle mats are full but you got a new puzzle and want to get the border together before bed that you're 6 hours late for...

    @Kerek@Kerek is over here like "can I read 365 books this year?" and "I haven't worked for more than a few minutes in a day in weeks."

    Bring back 2016 or 2017 mturk.

    I would give it a solid 2/5, if they managed to not put every demographics question on it's own separate page.
